Laurie was born in Fergus. As a young adult she spent a short time in Toronto, and then returned to Fergus. Laurie was always trying to bring beauty to the world, through her craft work and her lovely gardens. She loved nature, walking throughout her hometown of Fergus and feeding the birds. Her family and friends were always amazed at her ability to find a perfect gift for each person.
